Natural Selection is a collection of owner-operated safari camps and mobile safaris, united by the common aim of providing our guests with unique and exceptional safari experiences and being a part of the conservation solution for Africa’s wildlife.
We think frills are great, but they are no match for thrills, especially when it comes to African safaris. Don’t get us wrong, we love a great bottle of wine and soft sheets as much as anyone. But for us, the greatest luxury of all, by far, is experience. That’s why we’ve created a portfolio of welcoming camps and one-of-a-kind experiences that are full of unique soul and colorful character, with extraordinary staff, located in the very heart of where the wild things are.
We are thrilled to announce that Ralph Bousfield and Super Sande have been made joint winners of the Tatler Travel Best Safari Guide in Africa 2023 Award. Years of experience, a passion for guiding, exceptional research, storytelling and knowledge of the environment and all its living creatures as well as a deep understanding of what guests are looking for, all thrown together with oodles and boodles of charisma and charm. Their high level of guiding is what our safaris of character represent and this accolade is not only well deserved, but it is one that we are extremely proud of.
Southern Africa is a place of contrasts. Botswana, Namibia and South Africa may share several borders, but each country has its own very distinct features and dramatic charms. From Botswana’s watery landscapes and Namibia’s sun-scorched dunes and deserts to South Africa’s pristine coastline, there really is something for everyone – and we’re here to show you the best bits.
For the last 30 years, Natural Selection’s founders have pioneered unique safari experiences across Southern Africa’s untouched places and spaces. From intimate encounters with the continent’s iconic wildlife to meaningful interactions with the people who live here, our safaris are characterful, captivating and adventurous.
Location, location, location. That’s what we had in mind when we scoured southern Africa for the best wildlife viewing areas in which to establish our camps. The result? A selection of private reserves, concessions and incredible wilderness areas across Southern Africa, where animals are abundant and safari-goers are few and far between – and we think you’ll like them.
Our special offers are designed to help you experience everything southern Africa has to offer whilst also saving some all-important pennies. Whether you’re about to embark on a once-in-a-lifetime solo trip, or are celebrating a special occasion, have a peek at our offers and see what could be in store for you.
